While we are waiting for the necessary letter attesting to the relationship, it appears that the byname can be documented as the double surname Dumble Dore, again through the Family Search Historical Records:

With respect to the use of guns as charges, the on-line Pic Dic states:

The term "gun" is used here to mean any firearm held and used in the hand (as opposed to, e.g., cannons or mortars). This category of weapon includes the "musket" and the "arquebus", long-barrelled firearms with shoulder stocks (the top charge in the illustration); and the "pistol" or "handgun", less accurate but capable of being fired in one hand (the bottom illustrated charge). Such weapons are period: the arquebus was in use by the late 14th Century [Stone 71]. They were also used as period heraldic charges: a handgun, with a large bore and a small handle, is found in the canting arms of Gonson, c.1520 [DBA1 56]; a long gun with a strap (presumably an arquebus) was the canting badge of John Gunthorpe, Dean of Wells (d.1498) [Siddons II.2 335].

Any type of gun is acceptable in Society armory, so long as it was known in period: matchlock, wheellock, and flintlock weapons are all permitted. A firearm "proper" has a brown wooden stock and black metal parts; it is fesswise, muzzle to dexter by Society default.

11: Daft Punck - Resub Name & Resub Device

Azure, on a fess cotised argent two helms affronty sable.

Consulting herald: Hay Yoo

Daft is an English surname found in Family Search Historical Records:

Henrye Daft; Male; Christening; 02 Feb 1576; Kirkby-upon-Bain, Lincoln, England; Batch: C02960-3

Sixteenth century English surnames may be used as given names per the September 2012 Cover Letter.

Punck is intended as an surname derived from an occupation. This spelling is found in the OED, s.v. punk, which glosses the meaning as 'a prostitute, strumpet, harlot':

1596 Lodge Incarn Deuils Wks (Hunter Soc.) IV. 69 He hath a Punck (as the pleasant Singer cals her)

1603 Shaks. Meas. for M. v. i. 179 She may be a Puncke: for many of them are neither Maid, Widow, nor Wife.

As one of the period spellings is Pung (OED, 1607), it may be an evocative term, derived from the Middle English pung(e 'purse', which is itself a surname found in the MED:

(1278) Pleas Som.in Som.RS 41 139: Reginald Punge.

(1295) Let.Bk.Lond.B (Gldh LetBk B) 61: Alexander Punge.

(1327) Sub.R.Sus.in Sus.RS 10 191: Johe Pung.

Surnames with similar meaning appear in Family Search, showing that such a surname is plausible in late-period England:

John Harlot Male Christening: 06 Jun 1613 BRAMFIELD,HERTFORD,ENGLAND Father: John Harlot Batch: C07218-1

Jees Whore Female Christening: 30 Jan 1571 BURTON OVERY,LEICESTER,ENGLAND Father: Wyllm Whore Batch: C06023-2

And with a modern synonym, also found at Family Search:

Luce Hooker Female Christening: 26 Sep 1584 Alconbury-Cum-Weston, Alconbury-Weston, Huntingdon, England Father: Robert Hooker Batch: C16851-1

And, for good measure:

An Hustler Female Christening: 21 Aug 1594 SAINT MICHAEL,NEW MALTON,YORK,ENGLAND Father: Christofer Hustler Batch: C10851-3

Due to the term "punk" now having a completely different meaning in modern English, it is unlikely that the majority of SCA participants, or those outside of the SCA, would be offended upon seeing or hearing this surname. And although registration without comment does not set precedent, the term stewes 'prostitute' has been registered previously [Mary of the Stewes, 12/2004, A-East].

The submitter has submitted several other names in the past, all of which were returned for lack of documentation. He hopes he gets lucky this time.
